With “My World”, the second single from their upcoming I AM KING album, Code Orange (fka Code Orange Kids) shared perhaps their most aggressive and cacophonous track to date. (Seriously, just read some Twitter comments. There were legit metal-heads that were disturbed.)
Now, with the elegantly-titled “Dreams In Inertia”, the CoSigned Pittsburgh punk outfit slow things down a bit. Of course, in the Code Orange handbook, “slow down” actually means continue to deliver the same terse, pulverizing waves of guttural noise, but leave room for extended breaks of rumbling feedback and reverb-heavy drums.Those little bubbles of “quiet” aren’t exactly brimming with tranquility; instead, the band manages to fill each and every second with a sense of impending doom that’s more destructive than even the gnarliest riff.
Watch the accompanying video below (via Fangoria), which is the lo-fi equivalent of Rosemary’s Baby.
I AM KING is due out September 2nd via Deathwish Inc. For more sounds, check out the album’s assaultive title track.
